I had two 80 GB. Western D. Hard drives in RAID 0 running for 4 months. I had downloaded about 5 or 6 DVDRs to burn to disk this weekend. My new 50 pack of DVDR disks were due Friday from ups. On Friday afternoon my wife ( when i was at work) went to get on.
She said she got a error that a file could not be found ( for startup) and that it needed the windows disk to repair it. She tried to repair it and the repair failed.
When I got home, thinking I was going to watch a new recorded DVD, Then go to the Bar. She told me about this. After some looking into it I found that 1 of my hard drives failed. I could not even reformat the drives. I have now bought a 60 GB. Maxtor (master) and a 160 GB. Maxtor (slave) drive.
No more RAID 0 for me... Running this way I see no difference in speed...
I understand that in RAID 0 the data gets wrote to both disks at the same time.
Is there any way to recover data from a reformatted disk that ran in RAID 0 ???
Would that data be usable ??? or complete ???
